Hob in Mythology Edit

Like the Brownie, the Hob is a household fairy that helps with chores around the house. The hob in particular, looks after the health of children. He is especially good in curing a child's cough. He is naked and has long hair. If you give it clothes, it will be offended and leave the service of your house. ~ Hob ~ Myth Beasts
